A semi truck pulling a trailer full of hay went off the road at the intersection of Cannibal Island Road and Eel River Drive about 6:30 a.m.

Some folks in order to avoid the traffic snarl on 101 due to a slide are using Loleta as a detour. This semi is currently off the road and not causing any problems but when a tow truck comes that could change.

UPDATE 9:30 a.m.:
According to Carol Conners, “[T]hey have the truck upright, but the hay is still in the ditch. It will probably have to be pulled out one bales at a time.”
